The Rockland Legislature’s Budget and Finance Committee approved two resolutions yesterday that could be the turning point for the county’s financial future.
The first resolution voted on with a vote of 10-0 was borrowing $96-million, the same amount of the county’s audited budget deficit. On Tuesday, the full legislature will get their chance to vote on the matter, then its on to the state senate and assembly before Governor Andrew Cuomo can sign off on it.
The second resolution, with a vote of 9-1 approved an incentive program to cut expenses by reducing more county workers. The budget currently calls for $4.1-million in salary savings.
